BHP has struck an agreement with electric vehicle maker Tesla to supply it with nickel from its mines and refinery in Western Australia. BHP’s chief commercial officer Vandita Pant said it was delighted to sign the agreement with Tesla, and noted that demand for nickel in batteries is tipped to rise by more than 500 per cent over the next decade. The agreement with Tesla has led to further speculation that BHP plans to divest its oil and gas assets, in addition to the sale of its remaining interests in energy coal mines.
